I’m 35 years old and I have acne. How the hell did that happen?! I thought white heads were supposed to be banished to your awkward teenage years. Let me tell you there is nothing more awkward that turning up to a meeting with your CEO, dressed to impress in your best work attire with a chin full of oozing spots and pimples, wanting to be taken seriously.
Maybe my CEO – or everyone else I imagine starring at them – doesn’t notice them but it does make me self-conscious. How did I get here? I struggled with my skin a little when I was a (slightly) awkward teenager but luckily, I had a mum who recognised the importance of a good basic skincare regime and regular facials. That seemed to get me through a few years until I started the contraceptive pill and began ten blissful years of clean skin.
Back in those days, all I worried about were the dark circles caused by my rather hectic social life. When I decided to stop taking the contraceptive pill, I didn’t expect to see many changes. Boy, was I wrong. Within three months, I was battling monthly outbreaks, which over the course of a year got progressively worse. Blackheads, white heads, milia – you name it, I had it. Foundation covers up the angry redness to a certain degree but it didn’t cover up the lumps and bumps. Nor does it do anything to cure the problem it’s meant to cover.
In the last few months, I have got serious with my skin and I starting to see some real improvements. Am I there yet? No but – dare I say it – things are starting to move in the right direction. I am by no means a skincare expert so the below points shouldn’t be taken as miracle cure but I do believe they are starting to help me.
